My morning skin care routine – Winter 2016

If you have been following my blog for quite some time now, you know I am infatuated with skin care.

Given that I wrote about my routine the last time in September 2014 (read here if you are still interested), I figured it was about time to show you what has changed since then.

So prepare for my bare face and click the video below to see what I have done to keep my skin on track this winter.

Here is a list of the products I have mentioned, complete with links to reviews should I have written them already:

– Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser (Buy here)
– Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner (Review here)
– La Roche Posay Serozinc (Review here)
– M. Asam Resveratrol Essence of Youth * (Buy here)
– Garnier Ultra Lift Complete Beauty Eye Cream
– Oskia Renaissance 360 Anti-Ageing & Brightening Supreme Cream (available from March 2016 here)


Looking back, only the La Roche Posay Serozinc has remained unchanged. A few other bits have moved to the evenings, and others are completely gone.

The steps however did remain pretty much the same:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Acid toner
  3. Facial spritz
  4. Serum
  5. Eye Cream
  6. Moisturizer

I do apply a sunscreen whenever I know I will be outside for more than approximately 20 minutes, even in the midst of winter and on cloudy days, and I will add that on top of my moisturizer.

Oh, and I forgot to mention the Nuxe Rêve de Miel lip balm that I apply every morning without fail.


How did your routine change over the course of time?

And what do you use on your face in the mornings?
